THE ALL IMPORTANT GLUTES!6/27/2016
The Gluteus maximus is the largest muscle in the body, but for many it is also the most underused! We tend to use the front side of our body more in most daily activities, contributing to the atrophy of muscles in the back. This can lead to back problems as well as knee problems. And overall body imbalance.
The #ClassicalPilates method implemented at our #SanDiegoPilatesstudio addresses this. We regularly guide our clients through bridges, reformer squats, reformer side pushes, and other exercises to strengthen the glutes.
Then we also make sure to stretch out hip flexors in the front which become tight from so much sitting.
Getting back in balance can be easier than you think with this simple strategy.
Everyone is talking about posture these days...texting, talking on cell phones while holding them between ear and shoulder, transferring these same habits to other parts of your life when they don't even make sense! The sad news is that we ALL do it (even myself) so the real question becomes how to stop it.
I have found a few key strategies through Pilates: First, I think about my posture more. Awareness is the first step.
Next, I stand or sit up straight with my ears lined up over my shoulders. This creates proper head positioning and helps with opening up the chest. Then I pull my shoulder blades toward each across my back. AHHHH! Feels better already.
Practicing the #ClassicalPilates Method will improve strength and flexibility so that all of the above feels natural all the time!
HOW TO IMPROVE FLEXIBILITY3/15/2016
Pilates is famous for building #corestrength and improving problem backs. But did you know that it is also AWESOME for improving your flexibility? One of the great assets of the Pilates Method is that you are always stretching AND strengthening simultaneously if done properly. Give it a try...never more than 3 in a class!

#HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR MEMORY12/3/2015
Forget where you put your car keys? The "key" may be through your stomach! Studies have found that a diet high in cholesterol and saturated fat links to impaired memory. This memory loss was associated with inflammation in the brain and impaired nerve cell function. So as we age, it can be hypothesized that being careful with our diet can actually make us less forgetful. So stop eating all those holiday treats and opt for salad!
